Aussie game charts: November 5-11

Big new releases dominate the charts.

by

The week has seen an abundance of new games debut in the overall Australian game charts. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare on the Xbox 360 took out the coveted number-one position according to data trackers GfK Australia. The PlayStation 3 and PC versions of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare took out seventh and eighth, respectively.

The Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock bundle for the PlayStation 2 featured in second place for the first time, whereas the Xbox 360 version took out third spot. Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree (which comes bundled with a Wii Remote) grabbed fourth place. Nintendo's other big release for the Wii last week, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, finished off the week at number 10.

In other chart news, Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron moved up to number one on the PSP chart.

There where rumors that "Mass Effect" was released early in Australia. And that was true, EB Games have released it early (and maybe K-Mart as well). But if you look at the date (22/11), it was meant to be released this coming Thursday, That means EB Games have broken the law. My sister came home from her work yesterday, (she works at the new store "Game") and she told me that Game has sued EB for lost of profit, and Bioware, and Microsoft are going crazy. The People that sold that game early have to pay 80,000$AU and EB has been brought to court. Lucky for the people that brought it early nothing happens to them, But now EB are in big Doo Doo

Im not sure what the rat, dragon and bandicoots are doing on there, but this isn't too bad. I expected Metroid to finish a little higher though.

to the dude bellow,... im sure microsoft will make another console... they dont give a damn about the money lost or gained,.. its all about putting the others outta business, and its working so far against Sony. You cant stop the microsoft juggernaut!!

I dont think the ds is a threat to the 360 or the Wii Im ashamed of australian ninty fans....ratatoile? Big brain acadamey? Oh! SMG is'nt out there yet to epsilone I doubt that microsoft will make another console. They've lost so much money on the 360. No offence to any fanboys but Ninty one this round. The PS3 just crashed hard and the 360 still doesnt sell as much as the wii despite all of it's system sellers being out. And don't say ninty's are all out. They have 1 out.
